Hey guys, hope all is well happy new year. im 23 years old and started propecia a few months back for procationary measures. baldness in family but i not really showing any signs other then a weaker hairline, no recession really.

its working fine enough, maybe even slowed down a little bit of shedding, but if nothing else is giving me piece of mind. im now in month 5 or near to it and i think im just beginning to notice the "propecia shed" im shedding much more then i have. i know theres no universal rule but i was just wondering if that was common or uncommon to experience shedding all the way in month 5 and if you had any thoughts.

anything would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not an expert or anything, but I have been taking generic finasteride (restarting). I was taking Propecia about 10 years back for a couple of years; I was younger then, and did not notice any improvement--at least I thought. I do remember I was still shedding after I was on it for a year or two.

Now my lifestyle is different: Improved diet and taking TONS load of vitamins and supplements, and daily exercise routine. AND after HT, I decided to go back on but at the same time saving money by take a generic form. This is to maintain the hair I already have, AND hopefully see some improvement/density.

Anyway, I found this (*you have to google it, they are blocking the link I tried to put here):
"randomly shedding after taking propecia for months"

Good luck, my friend!
